We just got off of the Allure and don't get me wrong, it was a beautiful ship with lots to do... but after the shows ended at night, everyone was gone. We are use to going to the Schooner Bar or Bull & Bear on the Freedom ships but on the Allure, when we went to the Schooner Bar or Bow & Stern after the shows, they were basically closed. We even did the Rising Tide bar by ourselves on a couple of nights. Even though we don't like the big crowds, we do like having several other people around when we go out. With all of that said, if I could get a good deal on the Oasis ships, I would definitely go back.
We were on Allure on December 9th...I'm really glad we went and we did have a great time, but I prefer Voyager and Freedom class. We absolutely loved Central Park and its restaurants, as well as the healthy buffet in the solarium. Schooner, Bow & Stern, Champagne bar, Vintages, and Jazz were usually dead and we were practically alone on Rising Tide. Dazzles was busy for the scheduled events. Blaze was good for young adults. Service in the MDR for My Time Dining was inefficient. The pool and sun decks were both windy even in nice weather (maybe it was engineered this way so that people can be cooler in the Caribbean year-round).
